UniProt functional annotation for P00690

UniProt code: P00690.

Organism: Sus scrofa (Pig).
Taxonomy: Eukaryota; Metazoa; Chordata; Craniata; Vertebrata; Euteleostomi; Mammalia; Eutheria; Laurasiatheria; Cetartiodactyla; Suina; Suidae; Sus.
Catalytic activity: Endohydrolysis of (1->4)-alpha-D-glucosidic linkages in polysaccharides containing three or more (1->4)-alpha- linked D-glucose units.
Cofactor: Name=Ca(2+); Xref=ChEBI:CHEBI:29108; Note=Binds 1 Ca(2+) ion per subunit.;
Cofactor: Name=chloride; Xref=ChEBI:CHEBI:17996; Note=Binds 1 Cl(-) ion per subunit.;
Subcellular location: Secreted, extracellular space.
Miscellaneous: The two forms of this enzyme, I and II, show very similar activities, molecular masses, and compositions and differ only in their isoelectric points. As no evidence for two variants were in the cDNA library of PubMed:10082956, it is most likely that isoform I (PPAI) and isoform II (PPAII) are two forms of the same protein.
Similarity: Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 13 family. {ECO:0000305}.
